Something went into your eye?

f something gets in your eye, it’s important to take immediate action to remove it and prevent further irritation or damage. Here are the steps you should take if something gets in your eye:

  1. Stay calm and try not to rub your eye. Rubbing your eye can cause the foreign object to become embedded deeper into the eye, and can also cause more irritation.
  2. Flush your eye with clean water. You can do this by using a clean glass or a water bottle to gently pour water over your eye. This can help to remove any dust or debris that may be in your eye.
  3. Blink your eye a few times to help move the foreign object around. This can help it to come out of your eye on its own.
  4. Use eye drops to lubricate your eye. This can help to make it more comfortable and reduce any redness or irritation.
  5. If the foreign object does not come out on its own, or if you’re experiencing a lot of pain or discomfort, seek medical attention immediately.

It’s also important to remember that regular eye exams are an important part of maintaining good eye health.
